Senior Services is looking for donations for older people

November 13th, 2009    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: Community

Clermont Senior Services is looking for individuals, families, civic groups, churches, and businesses willing to donate items to make the holidays a little brighter for hundreds of needy older members of our community.

“Because they are on a limited income, the seniors have a hard time purchasing items many of us take for granted, like dish cloths, soap, and laundry detergent,” said Adopt-a-Senior coordinator Sharon Brumagem.

“It breaks your heart to see how little some of these men and women ask for.”

Those interested in the Adopt-a-Senior program will be matched with a senior that has filled out a wish list of items he or she needs.The items can be wrapped with the first name of the senior and his/her identification number; donors then drop-off the packages to Clermont Senior Services offices, located at 2085A James Sauls, Sr. Drive in Batavia. Volunteers will deliver the gifts before Christmas.

Brumagem said that in addition to the holiday program, items are needed in the gift pantry all year long.

For information on adopting a senior or donating, e-mail or call (513) 536-4060.
